I'm going to play semi-finals here for the first time tomorrow. I lost in the quarter-finals for the two years, so I'm really happy that I was able to go one step further.feedback

Xavier Bettel

I have just one life, and I don't want to hide my life. But I was not the 'gay candidate.' People didn't vote for me because I'm gay or I'm straight.feedback

Simon Burrows - 3i

We may or may not have to ensure we have a mirror of our approvals in continental Europe.feedback

Davide Serra

Everyone is preparing for the worst. You will see the emergence of Frankfurt, Paris, Dublin, Luxembourg, Madrid. To the world, London now matters more than New York. In 10 years' time, New York will matter more.feedback

Timothy Loughran

Apple is one of the best companies in the world, and a third of their value is sitting in vaults in Switzerland, and Luxembourg and Dublin. Isn't that pathetic?feedback

Kati Piri

Europe should be the place to open up. We know who are coming, if they take them to legal pathways and not to smugglers. You can do all the identification before and we can still show our human our our human side as the European Union, by taking the most vulnerable refugees. It's not happening enough.feedback

Ali Alfauori

My son was killed three years ago, and my nephew after my son, about eight months. My son was 16-and-a-half, and my nephew was 21. Syrian people are very kind people, but they are looking for their opportunity in life again. Don't be against them, try to deal with them, try to sit with them, try to speak with them, try to understand why they leave their country.feedback

Eugene Volokh

That’s what European Union executive branch leader Jean-Claude Juncker said he’d do, if Trump continues to urges other European countries to echo Brexit. Because we all know how swayed Americans will be by EU politicians telling them whether or not to secede. Or is this that famous absurdist Luxembourg humor?feedback

David Davis

We have been clear that we want a smooth and orderly exit, and the Great Repeal Bill is integral to that approach. It will provide clarity and certainty for businesses, workers and consumers across the United Kingdom on the day we leave the EU. But it will also ensure that we deliver on our promise to end the supremacy of EU law in the UK as we exit. Our laws will then be made in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast and interpreted not by judges in Luxembourg but by judges across the United Kingdom.feedback

David Davis

It will provide clarity and certainty for businesses, workers and consumers across the United Kingdom on the day we leave the EU. It will mean that as we exit the EU and seek a new deep and special partnership with the European Union, we will be doing so from the position where we have the same standards and rules. But it will also ensure that we deliver on our promise to end the supremacy of EU law in the UK as we exit. Our laws will then be made in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast and interpreted not by judges in Luxembourg but by judges across the United Kingdom.feedback

Fred Grim

We played with great flair and energy in bursts, and we also played good football. But you must also be critical: we give goals away too easily. We were on the right track and in some lesser matches, such as against Luxembourg [a 3-1 victory], we did win. But Saturday [against Bulgaria] was not good, and we know that.feedback

Didier Deschamps

He has to make the right choices but he is able to unbalance defences. This game against Luxembourg will give him confidence.feedback

Paul Merry - KPMG

Insurers are keen to work with regulators that ... show some flexibility in tailoring the approach in particular circumstances.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

I will sign my dear friends the declaration of Rome with a pen, I should say the pen used in 1957 by Luxembourg to sign the Treaty of Rome. These are the signatures that last.feedback

Xavier Bettel

We perhaps need Europe, but he too needs Europe. So it is a two-way street. If he thinks he doesn't need Europe, it is a lose-lose situation. But is now important for everyone to go for a win-win situation.feedback

Xavier Bettel

Mr. Trump will learn very fast that the EU is not a bunch of 27 grocery shops, where you knock at the door and start doing business. Instead, it is something grand, if we stick together and continue to act together.feedback

Xavier Bettel

On the contrary, the 60-year anniversary is the moment when we look at what works well. It marks 60 years of having liberties, having rights, living in a space where I can go to work, I can go to live, I can get married, I can die, I can study, I can be cared for, I can be defended, I can be elected. It is something we must remember. With the digital agenda, for example, we have 28 regulators, we have 28 markets, we are blocked between the United States and Asia, we are caught in a vice. We need to understand we need a common strategy.feedback

Xavier Bettel

It is not because a country says 'I do not want to' that we won't advance. We should be able to move forward issue by issue. It will not be a Europe with those who want and those who don't want. I would have preferred 28 ... (but) I respect that decision and regret it. I would prefer a two-speed Europe to a stalled Europe.feedback

Xavier Bettel

The problem is that a Europe at two speeds, it's not one speed and then another. It will not be one speed where everyone follows, and the second which no-one will follow.feedback

Xavier Bettel

On the contrary, the 60-year anniversary is the moment when we look at what works well. It is better to be aware that it works, Europe is born of a project of peace, with two countries, France and Germany, who before, were sometimes shooting at each other.feedback

Xavier Bettel

We have the enhanced cooperation, as you have seen with Schengen. We started in a few countries, then we grew up country by country. It will be like that with other things, and the euro has been the same. We see it with countries that may be initially chilly towards one or the other.feedback

Xavier Bettel

Other projects will want to continue working. I do not want to have a stalled Europe, and I will not be a hostage of one or the other on domestic policy issues.feedback

Xavier Bettel

You say Poland, but once again it is on a case-by-case basis. If Poland wants to block everything, it has to tell us. It will not be, on the one hand, those who move forward and the others at a dead end, even though often we have the impression some want to move backwards. It will be project by project, it is for me a multi-speed Europe where we move forward rather than remain at a standstill.feedback

Xavier Bettel

Rome is not at a moment of negotiation, Rome is the moment when for 60 years one lives in peace, it marks 60 years of having liberties, having rights, living in a space where I can go to work, I can go to live, I can get married, I can die, I can study, I can be cared for, I can be defended, I can be elected. It is something we must remember.feedback

Xavier Bettel

I will not let myself be blocked today because one decides. If one does not want to move forward, it is not the European Union, we are not hostage to one or the other, we continue together. My project is to remain at 27, I would have preferred 28, I respect that decision and regret it. But I want to continue as 27, that's my main purpose, but I don't want us to do nothing. I prefer a two-speed Europe than a stalled Europe.feedback

Ryszard Piskorz

Poland is an emerging country and in our sector Poland is coming out as a role expert, maybe even challenging Luxembourg as a fund industry centre.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

My home country, Luxembourg, was occupied by the Nazis. Our people were suffering. My father was forced into the German army together with his three brothers. If you are establishing a comparison of that period with our times, this is totally unacceptable. And the one who is doing this is taking distance from Europe and not trying to enter the European Union.feedback

Margrethe Vestager - European Union

It is important when people tell if they find that something is not the way it should be – then authorities, law enforcers can do their job and do it in a better way.feedback

Jacob Kirkegaard

If the U.K. refuses that, then the EU is going to say in return 'we are not going to be negotiating any future trade relations with the U.K.', at which point there is a real risk these negotiations break down and you may have early elections called in the U.K. (This) will create a lot of additional uncertainty and some volatility in the financial markets.feedback

Pierre Gramegna

We have triple-A ratings from all rating agencies. (There is) a lot of predictability and stability politically, economically and financially. Business always finds ways to expand and we want to be natural partners with the U.K. in this new venture.feedback

Yael Selfin - KPMG

For many Eastern European countries, protecting the workers in and remittances from the UK may be the most important priority, and countries such as Luxembourg, Malta and Cyprus rely on British workers.feedback

Yael Selfin - KPMG

Spain, however, may be glad to stem the flow of British pensioners to the economy, whilst Germany may be glad to see greater immigration from Eastern Europe and to repatriate some of its own workforce.feedback

Yael Selfin - KPMG

Remittances from emigrants can make a significant contribution towards national income. Latvia, Croatia, Hungary and Lithuania are the most reliant on remittances in the EU, all with over 3 percent of GDP coming from abroad. For many countries, one of the most important factors to influence the impact from Brexit will be the goods and services they export to the UK. The effect on domestic economies of migration may be ambiguous.feedback

François Bausch

We have decided that, as there is a large probability that a defeat device was used, to launch a lawsuit against unknown persons.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

The President is always ready to cooperate with Parliament... He has nothing to hide.feedback

Margrethe Vestager - European Union

The general, forward-looking change of approach announced by Luxembourg is very welcome.feedback

Carlo Oly

Having more than 10,000 instruments listed on the Euro MTF market, the recent delisting is clearly incidental.feedback

Fiona Le Poidevin

We have seen a steady stream of high-yield bond listings in the last few months, comprising a number of 'migrations' from both Luxembourg and Ireland in addition to new high-yield bond issues, and there are a number of further applications in the pipeline.feedback

Chris Lewicki - Planetary Resources

They are becoming not only investors, but very strong collaborators in their space resources initiatives.feedback

Grant Speirs

A Luxembourg retail Sicav platform will enable us to offer fund strategies to European retail investors if the UK loses financial services passporting rights in several years' time as a result of its exit from the EU.feedback

Jean Asselborn

We can resolve the problem of Brexit but we can't resolve the problems of the survival of the EU if we lose the essence of the EU. So what I told the German newspaper is not directed against one nation, it's aimed at better understanding the essence and values of the EU.feedback

Jean Asselborn

We cannot accept that the basic values of the European Union are being so seriously breached. Anyone, like Hungary, who builds fences against war refugees or breaches press freedom and the independence of the justice system should be temporarily, or if needed forever, excluded from the EU.feedback

Jean Asselborn

The fence that Hungary is building to keep out refugees is getting longer, higher and more dangerous. Hungary is not far from issuing an order to shoot refugees.feedback

Christian Kern

What Ireland, the Netherlands, Luxembourg or Malta are doing here lacks solidarity towards the rest of the European economy. They massively suck up the advertising volume that comes out of the economy but pay neither corporation tax nor advertising duty in Austria.feedback

Georg Berrisch - Baker Botts

It is quite obvious that the Commission will not be able to investigate 1,000 tax rulings. It will only go after manifest violations. It will have to pick and choose a few cases, maybe look into European companies. Luxleaks mentioned several European companies having tax deals with Luxembourg.feedback

Nicholas Veron - Bruegel

A rule of thumb of finance friendliness is provided by the … Financial Transaction Tax. Doubters such as Denmark, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Sweden are more likely to attract business from London than … supporters including France or Germany.feedback

Etienne Schneider

Luxembourg's aims is to be in the top 10 space faring nations in the world. In 1985 the government decided to launch the first satellite. We had huge discussions then that nobody would need that kind of satellite or that it could fall from the sky.feedback

Vittorio Colao - Vodafone Group

I am confident we will sustain our positive momentum in the coming year, allowing us to maintain attractive returns for our shareholders.feedback

Michael Sapin

It's thanks to him that we've been able to put an end to the opacity that prevented European countries from fully knowing the tax status of a number of large companies in Luxembourg.feedback

Gerard Ryle - International Consortium of Investigative Journalists

For a founding member of the EU to bring charges against a journalist in relation to reporting that is clearly in the public interest shows a lack of respect for the important role journalism plays in holding the powerful accountable. For a country to also charge two alleged whistleblowers shows Luxembourg has not yet caught up with public opinion.feedback

Uwe Jakob

We don't really know his real identity at this point. Each time he appears with a different name: in the Central Register of Foreigners, with the police in Luxembourg and in France.feedback

Jean Asselborn

The EU is accused of not moving quickly enough, so we had to adopt this legal decision on the relocation of 120, 000 people, as the Luxembourg presidency always planned. If we had not done this, Europe would have been even more divided and its credibility even more undermined.feedback

Věra Jourová

The data protection regulation will establish a single set of rules on data protection, valid across the EU – so no more fragmentation of the rules per member state.feedback

Charles Michel

The message is one of good spirits, of joy and of congratulations, and, most importantly, of happiness. This is the message I bring today.feedback

Margrethe Vestager - European Union

A tax ruling that agrees to McDonald's paying no tax on their European royalties either in Luxembourg or in the U.S. has to be looked at very carefully under EU state aid rules. The purpose of double taxation treaties between countries is to avoid double taxation – not to justify double non-taxation.feedback

Luisa Laranjo

If you buy a used car from a professional dealer you will pay VAT only in the country where you buy it, Luxembourg in your case.feedback

Laura Pedio

Gado is a radio relay station. The orders originated in Milan, and bounced from Luxembourg back to the Milan offices where the decisions regarding the brands were made.feedback

Claude Meisch

What has just happened is what we at the Democratic Party had asked for four weeks ago. That is to call on the government to quit and to make way for a new government via new elections because Luxembourg has a lot of problems and we realised this government was preoccupied with all these scandals.feedback

Robert Ley

It's to be forbidden because grape concentrate subsidies are being stopped… Well that's going to raise production costs in our (more northern) regions.feedback

Frank Linster

Our vineyard is very small… Whatever it produces we sell. In other words, it supports our markets' needs, and our markets ours. We don't see an interest in uprooting vines in our region.feedback

David Hammerstein

The tearing up of the vines and the sugar issue are, of course, connected. They want to suppress most of the production in southern Europe, where it is a more natural process, and they want to make Europe dependent on concentrated must and wines imported from third countries.feedback

Didier Reynders

It is important to say this is a Benelux agreement with three governments on board, who intervened directly to take control of three banks, situated in either Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. With a 49 per cent stake in the business it represents 11.2 billion euros.feedback

Viviane Reding

We have to clarify some questions: let's take Luxembourg citizens who are lost in Kazakhstan and the British embassy is going to save them, that comes at a cost to the British tax payer, so it is normal that they are paid back by the Luxembourg authorities. How this transfer is going to take place, that has to be regulated by a European law and will be.feedback

Daniel Gros - Centre for European Policy Studies

No, the risk of contagion should be quite limited. The case of Cyprus was really unique in several aspects. Luxembourg has also very large banks, but with one crucial difference: the banks in Luxembourg are all owned by other banks in the eurozone. So the Luxembourg government will never be responsible for anything that happens in Luxembourg. So, savers' in large countries like Italy or Spain should have no fear and therefore there should be no noticeable contagion.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

We have decided there will be an opening up of the services market and this will be done in such a way as to avoid any social dumping. France's concerns are largely shared by Sweden, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium, to name just a few. It is not true that the European Council has decided to make substantial changes to the directive solely because of strong shifts in France.feedback

Olli Rehn

Once ratified, the new EFSF will soon have access to new tools of intervention such as precautionary credit lines and interventions in the secondary markets and recapitalisation of financial institutions under certain conditions.feedback

Marguerita Sforza - Euronews

The President of the Eurogroup Jean Claude Juncker has shown some optimism, saying he has received reassuring news from the Slovakian government. The objective is to have the EFSF reform ratified by Slovakia before October's European summit.feedback

Xavier Bettel

It's not a case of wanting to stand out or be different, each has his own style. All I want is to continue in a pro-European, friendly spirit, not confrontational but trying to find solutions, and above all what I appreciate is respect, since I recognise I am not prime minister of the biggest country.feedback

Audrey Tilve

Xavier Bettel, for your first European summit, here's a slightly annoying question. Jean-Claude Juncker, your predecessor, left a mark on European politics. Is it not too burdensome being in his shadow?feedback

Xavier Bettel

No, he has certainly made his mark on summits, but now people will have to do with someone else, and I can tell you the welcome has been very, very warm. Thanks to the people of Luxembourg who made a choice and a parliamentary majority, I've been able to be present among my colleagues today.feedback

Margherita Sforza - Euronews

Prudence is the word you are hearing here in Luxembourg. Diplomatic sources say a quick decision from the finance ministers on the second aid package for Greece in not likely, they prefer to wait until after the Greek government's vote of confidence on Tuesday. But the euro zone can't afford all this indecision as the financial markets are looking for something more definite.feedback

Sandor Zsiros - Euronews

Jean-Claude Juncker's Christian Social People's Party has governed Luxembourg almost continuously over the last 60 years, except for one term. But now, his reelection is in question as analysts say the election race will be tight.feedback

Sandor Zsiros - Euronews

In the past few weeks opinion polls were banned from being published in Luxembourg, so this Sunday's election could be really exciting and also, the vote will determine the future of Jean-Claude Juncker, who is Europe's longest serving prime minister.feedback

Blaise Ducos

They are the work of a well-travelled person. Rubens visited Italy, Spain, England, and Paris. He worked in Paris, at the Luxembourg Palace. He really had the most extraordinary life experience. In modern terms this makes him a model European. He distinguished himself from his contemporaries, by that alone.feedback

James Franey - Euronews

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was less than enthusiastic when she was asked to endorse the former PM of Luxembourg to take over at the EU executive. If leaders and the European Parliament can't strike a compromise deal over the next few weeks, it could spell the start of a bitter row here in Brussels…at a time when voters are urging governments to do more to fix the economy.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

The commission will do its job. I won't intervene on this dossier because the competition commissioner is responsible for it.feedback

Angela Merkel

And we see that pressue alone of drawing up a list of tax havens has already yielded important initil results. Yesterday Lichtenstien, Switzerland, Austria and Luxembourg took an important step towards greater transparency.feedback
